What a Good Jog Can Do
My whole life changed the day I took up running. It all started when a friend signed me up for a half marathon and I was thrown into a world of 6 a.m. training runs and peculiar aerodynamic shoes. I've been a runner ever since. It's not always pretty, and there are many days when I stand on a trail with my hands on my hips, gasping for breath and wondering if I am cut out for such athleticism.
But I kept going and I learned that running has a multitude of benefits. From your physical health to your sanity, there’s nothing that a good jog can’t improve.
